Pronounced: JERK-wah-tuhr, adj
Notes: I recognized this word from westerns, but my understanding of the definition was a bit off
The word smashmouth means “characterized by brute force without finesse”
Background / Comments
I’ve heard this word used to describe physical, hard-hitting football, and that was indeed how it started. It has since spread to other contact sports. It is sometimes used to describe politics (at least in the United States).
This word is relatively new; it showed up in the 1980s.
